THIS IS LARRY MANKIN FROM THE SALT LAKE AREA CHAMBER OF COMMERCE WITH YOUR METRO BUSINESS REPORT.

Several Salt Lake businesses report personnel changes. Zions Bancorporation has named George W. Helme, IV as Executive Vice President for Trust and Investment Management. Wasatch Crest Group added Mark Finkelstein to its board of directors and appointed John A. Igoe as President and CEO.

Salt Lake Community College’s marketing management students, student organization, and professors have received about 100 local, state, and national awards this school year.

Here’s an Olympic business fact: This week we are reviewing the different locations of the 2002 Cultural Olympiad Venues. Four of the cultural venues in Salt Lake City are Art Access Gallery, Capitol Theater, Salt Lake Art Center, and the City and County Building.

The Chamber honors Spence Eccles tomorrow, June 28th, as A Giant In Our City. Spence’s grandfather, David Eccles, was one of Utah’s great pioneer business leaders and was involved in more than 30 businesses. When David died in 1912, Spence’s uncle Marriner, managed the estate as a whole instead weakening its value by dividing the assets. This eventually resulted in an accumulated fortune held in various charitable foundations and trusts. Spence is involved with five Eccles foundations where he embodies the spirit of giving that has marked the Eccles family through all its generations. For more information on A Giant In Our City tribute dinner honoring Spence Eccles, call 328-5043 or see us on the web at saltlakechamber.org.
